The postage rush

Wednesday, April 18, 2018 by ED PANY Curator, Atlas Cement Company Memorial Museum in Columns

When postal rates increase, there is a collective groan! Remember when you thumbed through your pile of stamps to find the exact postage for your mail? Thankfully, the dilemma for some of us was solved by the Forever Stamp, a great improvement from the past.

I found an old column written by my good friend Al Recker more than 15 years ago. It is very enjoyable, so we thought we would share it with you.

Fifteen years ago, the 37-cent stamp made an appearance at our post offices.

Al writes, “When the post office opened, it took on the appearance of a supermarket.”
